JON OSSOFF (D), Challenger

A special election candidate for the House of Representatives in 2017, Jon Ossoff is an outspoken supporter of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

The choice in November couldn’t be clearer. I’ll defend Roe v. Wade and the privacy of women’s health care with everything I’ve got. Sen. David Perdue believes *he* belongs in the exam room with Georgia’s women, making health care decisions for them.

  • In the Senate, Ossoff will only confirm federal judges who commit to upholding Roe v. Wade.

  • Ossoff denounced Georgia’s now-blocked six-week abortion ban, saying: “Women in Georgia already face a maternal mortality crisis among the worst in the nation. Half our counties have no OB/GYN! Yet Georgia GOP’s has insisted on passing this extreme, unconstitutional abortion ban.”

  • Ossoff has been an outspoken supporter of Planned Parenthood, and he will fight attempts to block access to care at its health centers — which thousands of Georgians rely on for preventive, reproductive health care.

DAVID PERDUE (R), Incumbent

Sen. David Perdue has consistently attacked access to reproductive health care, and he wants to ban access to safe, legal abortion.

[T]here are certain issues on which I will not waver. I believe that we should promote a culture that values life and protects the innocent, especially the unborn. I also believe that we must protect traditional marriage, keeping it between one man and one woman.

  • Sen. Perdue backed Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, voting to confirm him and dozens of other Trump-nominated judges to the federal judiciary. 

  • During his time in Congress, Sen. Perdue has voted multiple times to “defund” Planned Parenthood and impose a national 20-week abortion ban.

  • In lockstep with President Trump, Sen. Perdue has tried repeatedly to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and strip millions of people of insurance coverage and protections for pre-existing illnesses. He expressed his steadfast anti-ACA beliefs in 2014: “We need a senator who will fight to repeal Obamacare.”
